The Year of Billy Miller

Another book I read for our Newbery book club meeting was The Year of Billy Miller by Kevin Henkes.  This is a really sweet book.  Students will find the reading level very low.  My fourth grader could have easily read this in second grade--the age of our novel's protagonist.

I enjoyed how each section of the book was told from the perspective of different people--Billy's mom, dad, sister.  Just a sweet, feel-good book perfect for the end of summer as students get ready to tackle a new school year adventure.
